For nearly two decades, bassist/composer/producer/educator Gerald Veasley has enjoyed a stellar reputation not only among jazz fans but among his fellow performers, thanks to six dynamic studio recordings. For all of his success and acclaim, though, he has never released an album that captures the electrifying funk and melodic magic of his live shows ... until now.
Gerald Veasley at the Jazz Base provides a unique window into the flip side of this compelling artist’s creative identity, the one that emerges every time he takes the stage. And what better stage to record his first live album than the one at his own club, Gerald Veasley’s Jazz Base? This intimate, in-the-round style nightclub in Reading, Pennsylvania, serves as a performance center and creative laboratory for Veasley and other top jazz talent to work their musical miracles in front of an audience. The Jazz Base has become a vital performance hub for the annual Berks Jazz Fest, where Veasley performs and also leads his annual Bass Boot Camp for musicians seeking to perfect their craft.
On two successive evenings in November 2004, Veasley and his band took the stage in these familiar surroundings to perform fan favorites from his catalog. Throughout the performances, Veasley and his band created a palpable vibe, a synergy of sound optimized by the 150-seat club’s intimate atmosphere. The resulting recording is soul satisfying.
Anyone who has witnessed a Gerald Veasley performance is aware of the energy, emotion and power his music holds. Veasley’s band features long time collaborator Chris Farr on saxophones, Eric Green on drums and Pete Kuzma on organ, all three of whom are currently on tour with Jill Scott. The band also spotlights vocalist/keyboardist Will Brock, fresh from releasing his own project, and former Alicia Keys’ percussionist Pablo Batista. “There were some songs that the new guys weren’t even familiar with,” says Veasley. “So they could bring a fresh take to them. We could rearrange songs to fit the new character of the band. We tried to do that with just about every tune on the record.” ~ concordmusicgroup.com
